More jobs, less deforestation, one meal at a time.
In Haiti, 9 out of 10 households use charcoal or wood for cooking on a daily basis. This reliance on tree wood for fuel is devastating, resulting in one of the world's most deforested landscapes, as well as widespread unemployment and one of the highest extreme poverty rates on Earth.
Carbon Roots International's solution to Haiti's wood charcoal problem is green charcoal. Made locally from agricultural waste, green charcoal is a cheaper, cleaner, longer lasting alternative to wood charcoal.
